Almost twenty years of experience in editing manuscripts will benefit you greatly! If you want your work to be seriously considered by agents, editors, or publishers, it needs to be free of grammatical and mechanical errors. This is where Literally Precise can help you.

Web Content

Do you want your website to showcase professionalism and accuracy? Do you want it to be easily navigated and understood? We offer services that will assist you in these areas and more. Let us give your website the help it needs to bring you the business you want.

Newsletters & Updates

Nothing seems to speak for you or your company more than a newsletter or update. Multiple errors can reflect poorly on you or your business. We can proofread or copyedit your communication to ensure that you are accurately represented. Because these documents tend to contain relatively small amounts of text, you can be correctly depicted at an affordable price.


Advertising errors don’t usually generate legitimate business. They may cause an increase in web or street traffic, but unless you’ve implemented an intentional mistake, that increased traffic won’t be reflected in monetary gain. A quick, professional review of advertising materials will help keep your company credibility in check.

Academic Papers

If you want to ensure that your academic papers are free of errors, let us look at them. We offer services to check for correctness in grammar and mechanics as well as advice on how to make your paper more effective. Our experienced English Composition instructor can give your essay greater clarity and cohesion.

Resume and Curriculum Vitae

Having someone edit your resume or curriculum vitae is well worth the money spent. Research has shown that poorly written resumes are likely to be discarded. Make sure you aren’t disqualified for a job based on writing errors.

Invitations & Announcements

Most of us have been sent invitations or announcements that have mistakes in them. Unfortunately, this can cause the actual event to take a second seat, while the mistakes become the focus. Don’t let this happen to you! Save yourself stress, time, and money (reprinting can be expensive) by letting us check your document first.

We have used Michelle’s editorial skills for hundreds of projects. Her overall knowledge of the English language, grammatical excellence, ability to create clarity and cohesion in existing text, remarkable time management skills, and attention to detail combine to make her a highly capable and efficient editor who consistently meets deadlines.

I would like to express my deep appreciation to Michelle Winger for her proofreading skills necessary to resolve my shortcomings… You have become my number one source for proofreading. Your skill and guidance have exceeded my expectations.

Michelle Winger has provided an invaluable service to us over the past 10+ years in proofing and editing college documents, from our student handbook to ad copy. She is very professional, accurate, works quickly, and understands how to serve her customers by asking the right questions and grasping the scope of a project before beginning an edit. We look forward to a continuing relationship with Michelle and highly recommend her to the business and education community.

Michelle’s keen eye for accuracy, and her wise advice on style and formatting, gave me confidence that my master’s thesis would meet the standards of academic excellence expected at the graduate level. Contracting with her to read my paper was a good investment.

Mike Neterer

Michelle provided very thorough copy editing services to our company. The project lasted several weeks and she was extremely prompt in all phases of the initiative. We definitely would use her expertise again.

Randy Dirks, Ph.D

VP Advancement
As a student in Michelle's class I was pleasantly surprised by her passion for English and the writing process. Her love for language, and gifting to teach in an encouraging way, is something I had not encountered before. Her love for writing rubbed off on me and now I maintain a blog as well as semi-monthly newsletters. Thank you, Michelle, for making a difference in my life by sharing your knowledge and love for the writing process!

Hand over any proofreading or editing to Literally Precise and you can forget about those nagging questions: Did I forget something? Should I reword it differently? You can breathe deep and relax. Literally Precise is exactly what it claims—precise, thorough, and committed to excellence.

Though the two are closely related, editing and proofreading are very different. Editing literally means to edit for publication. An editor pays close attention to the details of a project in order to make it ready for publication. Proofreading is performed on almost completed material with the intention of finding and marking errors. Perhaps an easier way of defining the difference between the two is to think of them as two different steps in the same process. An editor works on developing material in the early to middle stages, while a proofreader comes in at the final stage to ensure flawlessness.

Even professional editors should have their material read by someone other than themselves. It is virtually impossible to look at your own work objectively. You are likely to read what you intended to write, rather than what is actually written. Getting an outside perspective is critical to successful writing.

Literally Precise offers four different editing services. These services are determined by differing levels of document revision. To see the list of specifics offered in each level, see **page**.

To determine what level of editing is needed, submit a sample of your project. The sample will be reviewed, and you will be sent a recommendation of which service level would best suit your project. Once you have decided on a service and your desired completion time, an estimate will be sent to you.

The turnaround time for a project is dependent upon the type of document submitted and the urgency of its completion. Upon submitting a sample of your project, you will be sent an estimate of completion time. Rush projects will be charged an additional fee.

The privacy and confidentiality of your project is of utmost importance to us. We will not share your work, or portions of your work, with anyone outside of our company. Your business is no one else’s business.
